No it’s not a slow news day…We saw the pictures and we knew we had to run this story (I don’t think you’ll disagree).

The Jacksonville Jaguars cheerleaders have swapped their pom poms for pencils to be tested on their knowledge of Wembley Stadium ahead of the game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

With Wembley set to become the second home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, the stadium wanted to put the girls to the test by sending them behind-the-scenes on the official tour.

Kayla, Caitlin, Jessica and Talitha sat pitchside to take the Wembley exam following their tour of the iconic stadium and answered questions on the incredible history of sporting and musical events to take place at the venue.

Here are the questions from the cheerleaders exam; How do you fare up? (answers at the bottom of the page)
